    December 24, 2019 - Similar to my previous note - a tangy, light feeling wine with cherry, red fruits and a fine acidic balance. Bit of clove spice on finish which adds to its Spanishness. Great food wine.

    September 18, 2019 - End of drinking window for my last bottle. Earlier bottles drank quite a bit better. Did not take the time to decant and didn't think to use aerator, so maybe my own fault. Was a bit of an astringent finish that got me... don't recall that in earlier bottles. Still, the wine worked fine for bacon cheeseburger quick weeknight dinner. Maybe last glass will be better tomorrow. Will definitely buy this again and drink in a 4-8 yr window.

    Edit: looks like I already did pickup more: 4 bottles of 2016 in the cellar. Nice!

    May 26, 2019 - Rich and savoury with some more advanced flavour developing already. Great QPR. Too bad it is my last bottle.

    April 14, 2019 - Excellent. This has held up quite well with time. The tannins are mellow and showcase the wine well.
